Every year or two I try to get up with girlfriends that I have known since my single days. We share a meal together, laugh a lot, show pictures of our children and grandchildren and usually finish three or four hours later. I was so inspired by our get together that I thought I would pass on the inspiration to you. One of my friends handed each of us a bottle of JOY liquid detergent and said something very simple and yet profound. She said, “I have decided that my motto for the New Year is “Every day is a good day. I am finished with bad days. I only have good days and better days. I choose joy!” I like that and come to think of it what a great way to live. If it’s true, as it has been said, that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it, then that is definitely the right perspective.
I have made a decision. I am done with bad days. Every day is a good day, because the one who graced the human stage is with us, Immanuel, God with us! I pray that this year you and the ones you love will experience the incredible presence and power of God in your life and that 2011 will be a year of prosperity, blessing and breakthroughs for you!
